HC directs InCablenet to pay arrears to ESPN-Star Sports

The Mumbai High Court has directed InCablenet to pay ESPN Software India Limited for 175,000 subscriber homes till further orders. As per the court directives, InCablenet has to deposit in court a sum of Rs 4 lakhs per month for additional 25,000 subscriber homes over and above Rs 24 lakhs, which InCablenet was paying under the contract for 1.5 lakh subscriber homes. InCablenet has also been directed to pay arrears for the months of May and June 2001.

InCablenet has to deposit Rs 48 lakh in three days and Rs 8 lakh for additional 25,000 connections for the months of May and June within seven days.

The court has permitted ESPN to withdraw the aforesaid sum of Rs 8 lakh by furnishing an undertaking.

ESPN Software had switched off both ESPN and Star Sports services to InCablenet as the cable network failed to pay on the basis of the increased subscriber base of 1.75 lakh homes.

As a result, the subscribers of InCablenet in Mumbai had to miss out on cricket telecast of India vs Zimbabwe test series on STAR Sports and the Australia-Pakistan-England triangular series on ESPN.
